GE Oil & Gas has received a $28 million contract to revamp and upgrade liquefied natural gas (LNG) process train 1 at the Atlantic LNG’s production facility in Point Fortin, Trinidad and Tobago.
Train 1 is composed of six turbo compressors driven by Frame 5/2C gas turbines. GE Oil & Gas will upgrade the gas turbines to Frame 5/2 D technology, which will reportedly increase the output of each unit by 13% to 43,700 HP.
GE also will provide internal components to upgrade the train’s centrifugal compressors. The equipment for the project will be supplied from GE Oil & Gas’ facility in Florence, Italy.
The upgrade activity will be conducted during two shutdowns: September 2003 for the first three turbo compressors, and April 2004 for the remaining three units. Train 1 already is under a contractual service agreement (CSA) provided by GE Oil & Gas.
